    Jeremiah, I don't think that was the intent of the OP. I think it is a lighthearted look at how Santa is viewed in todays materialistic world.. I specifically reference the Tim Allen observation.

    Actually what troubled me about it was the history of Paganism is not tied to Christianity but Catholicism and I do not recognize Catholicism as any part of Christianity. So that is my trouble with his OP but I've decided I just won't respond to him again. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me about it, Westwall. I do not have anything further to say on his thread. Thanks again.

    I found it funny and very entertaining and I have no problem with it, but Santa to some is based on St. Nicholas who was a religious figure.

    As a public service announcement, a helpful reminder to all:

    Santa Is Odin.
